Are plastics less resistant to new types of cooling lubricant?
Since the EU Reach chemicals regulation (EC 1907/2006) came into force, a whole series of environmentally harmful biocides has disappeared from cooling lubricants. This is good news, but it is now gradually becoming apparent that, while containing fewer biocides, the new emulsions are seemingly less compatible with hard plastics and elastomers.

Umati@EMO
The VDW, together with its project partners, has developed the standardized umati (universal machine tool interface) interface for simple, secure data exchange between machines and IT systems. It is particularly important in the implementation of industry 4.0 in the factory. At the EMO Hannover 2019 trade visitors could experience live for the first time how umati machine data can be made usable. In this video you can hear voices about the implementation and future of umati.
